Rumor was that the 3.0L was originally planned for use in a Cadillac when diesels were on the rise in passenger cars. We all know what happened there.

That's supposedly the first generation of the V6 that Ram uses. Not a direct linage to the straight 6 that GM is using.

Really. I thought it was the inline 6. But the whole VM/GM diesel engine relationship is confusing to me. The more I learn the less I know about it.

I believe the 2.8 in the colorado/canyon is derived from a VM design. Afaik, the 3.0 is a clean sheet design and all GM.

That's awesome. Let's see how they package it, though. Great MPG means less if you have to spend $50k to get it.

Looks like it is a $2500 add on in the LT, RST, LTZ, High Country lines:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDOuXuxbfCo

So starting at $42k+ (even the V6 4x4 work truck is $40,000 )

2020 RAM numbers haven't been released yet, bet they are somewhere in the 30-34MPG range for the 2wd.

The 3.0L Duramax diesel has been emissions certified by CARB, which should remove all of the regulatory hurdles for this engine to be available for sale there.

EPA emissions certification should be just a formality at this point.

I'm digging this inline 6. Will be a good replacement for the 4Runner in a few years.

So, yeah, an out of the financial grasp of most people who want one scenario. I figured as much. Once again, GM following Ford. The diesel F150 "starts" at $46k, though.

I still do not get all new full sized trucks starting at $40k, but then dropping instinctive to make them in the low $30k range to be "affordable".
Then you look at used truck which are $2,000 cheaper than new.

Well, they DON'T start at $40k. They start around $27-28k. Still a lot of money, but given the bang for the buck and some of the technology they have over the older ones, it is not surprising. I am not sure a 2019 F150, starting at $28,155 is worth *exactly* twice what my 1996 sold for. But adjusted for inflation that may not be all that bad of a deal.

Details please...I have 125k very hard miles on my modded 335d and 93k on the wifeís X5 35d slightly less modded but she definitely drives hers harder than I do mine.

Other than oil changes, fuel and air filters Iíve had to do cbu cleaning on mine once. I did have to replace glow plugs and plug module on mine but hers has needed nothing beyond pm.
